BBC World Service Trust Manipulates Radio Show for NRA
Listeners say of thought reads disappointment past Friday shortly after it was observed that the moderator of regular BBC World Service Trust Radio show,, unprofessionally handled contextual issues relevant to GST (Goods and Services Tax).
It must be noted however that the introduction of tax GST apparently questioned fundamentals surrounding development and the effect it has to the economy of Sierra Leone generally.
According to Alimamy Turay, a regular listener of the BBC World Service Trust Radio programme, he confessed not having the understanding of what was the essence of the discussion.
“Please tell something on Accountability of the NRA, the economic effect of GST Tax, collection procedure,” Alimamy asked.
It was observed that a representative from the Financial Times newspaper, Ezekiel Durameny-Lakoh, was looking at more technical issues bordering on tax; identifying and trying to discuss areas where tax policy is key to the economy.
Mr. Hassan Omelaja, a representative from NRA was completely off the track, and was acting as a Public Relations Officer for President Koroma and his agenda for change proclamation.
He was continually seen as praise singing the Commissioner General of the NRA.
Discussions on tax, unlike other areas, require sober and head fixed professionals better inclined to financial issues.
It is evidently clear that Sierra Leone is still not forging ahead owing to the selfishness of persons assigned to state responsibilities; food finders and not national planners.
Full details to follow.
